Is Albertson going start putting the Acme logo on the trucks again..I miss seeing the Acme trucks on the highway.
I have no idea but at least they're not taking them off the trailers that still have them!
According to my Spanish teacher, Whole Foods is looking into moving into the old Exton ACME. I have not seen any signs that this is definitely happening; as ACME is still completely furnished. If anyone has heard anything about this, please let me know!
I've been waiting for a while, and I highly reccomend you should do the Doylestown Acme, It was a Sears before!! I can't believe that!
Doylestown Acme was always an Acme. Sears was in a separate building at the other end of the shopping center
Oh, Then JoshAustin610 Was Wrong, But... I Did Find A Comment That Says:"Acme is an original tenant with this shopping center. The original store opened in 1959 (Oct 14), and was located where Staples is today. It was a typical late 50's store with cursive Acme Markets on the canopy. When Sears relocated to the Montgomery Mall, Acme moved into the Sears space. There have been many remodels over the years. It was completely remodeled during 2006 with the first Premium Fresh and Healty decor package used in an Acme, complete with the Albertson flowers. The lighting is a bit dim, but the interior and exterior are beautiful. The above picture does not do justice to this spectacular store."
I grew up in Doylestown and I collect history of Doylestown. Acme Markets and its predecessor American Stores has been a part of Doylestown since the 1920s. The first American Store was located on West State Street next to the Doylestown Inn. In 1937 the Inn purchased the building that the American Store was located for a dinning room, the American Store moved to 50 North Main Street (On Monument Square). Some time in the 1940s the first Acme Markets opened at the corner of State & Clinton Streets in Doylestown until October 13, 1959. To celebrate the opening of the new Doylestown Shopping Center, on October 14, 1959 there was a parade from the State Street Acme to the newly opened Doylestown Shopping Center at 480 North Main Street. Since moving to the shopping center the Acme has been the same location of the center. Acme has been enlarged and remodeled several times. At no time was it located were the Sears (now a Staples) store was.There was an A&P located by the Sears store in a separate group of stores.
According to an old copy of ACME's website I found on webarchive.com, the old Exton tore was located where the Exton Post Office is now. It's footprint seems to line up with the old ACME's too!
KMart is a dump. They'd already shut down Langhorne Kmart (built in 73), and the North Philly KMart (built in 70s/80s, next to former ACME now supreme.Whats next. KMart closes Bensalem?
ACME, The Fairless Hills Shop Rite (former A&P/Super Fresh) is going under a remodel, from I heard, They got rid of coffin cases, and mixed the grocery, example: chips was aisle 4, but its aisle 14 or 15 now. they got rid of the florist department during remodel
I found out the Bottom Dollar in Street Road (bensalem, PA) was INDEED NOT A ACME! BUT A SHOP N BAG!
I love this site! Just discovered it, and thank you for all of this great info. Did you know that there was an Acme in the Princeton Shopping Center (Princeton, NJ)? Also, I believe there was one in Hightstown, NJ in the old part of town by the lake. Does anyone remember these 2 stores? I wish I'd taken pictures of them in the 80's when they were still open.
